Defined in header <<fenv.h>>
int fegetenv( fenv_t* envp );
(1) (since C99)
int fesetenv( const fenv_t* envp );
(2) (since C99)

1) Attempts to store the status of the floating-point environment in the object pointed to by envp.

2) Attempts to establish the floating-point environment from the object pointed to by envp. The value of that object must be previously obtained by a call to feholdexcept or fegetenv or be a floating-point macro constant. If any of the floating-point status flags are set in envp, they become set in the environment (and are then testable with fetestexcept), but the corresponding floating-point exceptions are not raised (execution continues uninterrupted)



envp - pointer to the object of type fenv_t which holds the status of the floating-point environment

Return value

0 on success, non-zero otherwise.
